Gena Showalter – Angels of the Dark Series Reading Order + Giveaway!

by Maryse on May 12, 2014 · 78 comments

in Reading Order Guide:

In celebration of best-selling author Gena Showalter’s latest release “BURNING DAWN” she is having a giveaway! One (1) winner receives an Angel Wing bracelet (<—- ooooh pretty!!) & a 3 book set of the Angels of the Dark series.

Gena Showalter concocts a sultry tale that pulls readers farther into the treacherous and decadent world she’s fashioned, where angelic soldiers fight to vanquish demonic forces, in BURNING DAWN, the third installment in the electric Angels of the Dark series.

And!! I thought I’d put up the series reading order since this series is a part of this awesome giveaway. :D

About book #1:

Leader of the most powerful army in the heavens, Zacharel has been deemed nearly too dangerous, too ruthless—and if he isn’t careful, he’ll lose his wings. But this warrior with a heart of ice will not be deterred from his missions at any cost…until a vulnerable human tempts him with a carnal pleasure he’s never known before.

Accused of a crime she did not commit, Annabelle Miller has spent four years in an institution for the criminally insane. Demons track her every move, and their king will stop at nothing to have her. Zacharel is her only hope for survival, but is the brutal angel with a touch as hot as hell her salvation—or her ultimate damnation?


New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter returns with a sizzling Angels of the Dark tale about a winged warrior renowned for his ruthlessness, and the woman who becomes his obsession…

A tormented past has left Thane with an insatiable need for violence, making him the most dangerous assassin in the skies. He lives by a single code: no mercy. And as he unleashes his fury on his most recent captor, he learns no battle could have prepared him for the slave he rescues from his enemy’s clutches—a beauty who stokes the fires of his darkest desires.

Elin Vale has her own deep-rooted scars, and her attraction to the exquisite warrior who freed her challenges her every boundary. But Thane’s unwavering determination to protect her means she must face her greatest fears—and enter a world in which passion is power, and victory means breathtaking surrender.

Just leave a comment below :)  And Friday night (Friday May 16th, 2014) by 10pm EST, I will randomly select one winner.

The winner will be contacted and will have 48hrs to respond with a mailing address, so if you are picked, do not delay or you will lose your chance. This book will be sent to the winner directly by the publisher.

  • Prize pack retail value $45
  • Prizing & samples courtesy of Harlequin
